I noticed in that whenever I enter "None" at the beginning of the line
in IDLE 3.1, the word is colored orange (for keywords) rather than
purple. If I insert a space right before the "None", it returns to its
normal purple color (for builtins), so it only seems to occur at the
beginning of a line. The same thing occurs to "True" and "False", but
not "list", "int", etc. This did not occur in 2.6.

In Python 3, True, False and None are keywords, so the orange should be
correct. It should be orange also when you do "foo = True" though.

The attached patch excludes keywords from the builtin list and corrects the highlighting configuration panel.

I just realized that there is 'another' reason not to reuse builtin names (other than those usually given): they will be colorized as builtins even if they have no relation to the builtin. Make_pat uses the function any() defined just above (before the builtin, I am sure), so 'any' is colored as if it were the builtin. Within, it is only used within make_pat, so I considered renaming it to anyp or any_pat, but it might be used by some other module that imports ColorDelegator. Another issue.

"name not in keyword.kwlist" could be "name not in {None, True, False}", but those happen to be the first three items in the kwlist, so the time difference would be nil.

Looks good. Tested on 3.2.2 Win7. Applied.
